Sugar-Coated Exhibition at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery
Mar 16 @ 8:00 am – Apr 27 @ 5:00 pm
Sugar-Coated Exhibition at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Sugar-Coated explores the topic of euphemisms as found in American culture. Euphemistic language ranges from attempting to speak politely about uncomfortable topics to more nefarious attempts to disguise truth and purposely mislead audiences. Topics include bodily functions, body parts, puberty, sex, aging, death, human suffering, politics, religion, and war. Euphemisms are also used to soften the delivery of bad news such as death, loss of employment, or removal of rights or privileges.

The exhibition, co-curated by Holly Cobb and Michelle Montrose Larsen, provides a visual exploration of euphemisms, revealing their effect on our culture, both individually and collectively. With the ever-increasing amount of visual marketing, the ability to identify and decode euphemisms becomes increasingly crucial.

Gallery talks and discussions with the artists will be held on Friday, March 16th from 5:00-6:00 p.m. The opening reception will be from 6:00-9:00 p.m. that evening in conjunction with Gallery Stroll.

The Gallery is open Monday – Friday.

Humanity Unleashed @ Ragan Theater in the Sorensen Student Center |  |  |

Take a journey through the vast range of human emotions as the Men’s Choir and Women’s Choir tells vulnerable stories of humanity. As Johnny Depp sagely noted, “Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t.” Music is an international language that transcends all boundaries and builds the invisible bridges, highways and tunnels that connect our hearts. More music means more connections and more connections means a better world for all of us.

Ouça - Listen @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Salt Lake City, Utah, April 26, 27 & 28, 2018: Samba Fogo proudly presents Ouça – Listen, an evening of live music and dance, on fire!

Drawing on rich Afro-Brazilian culture and mythology, Samba Fogo will ignite the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, as they weave traditional and contemporary dance, fire spinning, and diverse live music. Ouça – Listen will feature original musical compositions, sound scores, and high-energy choreography, performed by a cast of over 35 spectacular artists including a dance company of 12. The live band for this year’s concert includes vocalists Solange Gomes and George Edgar Brown, hailing from São Paulo and Brasilia, Brazil. These talented vocalists will be backed by a string quintet, a horn line, and a mobile “bateria” Brazilian drum line – a diverse and dynamic orchestra, providing a rhythmic and musical backdrop inspired by traditions from Cuba, Africa, and Brazil. With this unique concert, Samba Fogo hopes to inspire audiences to listen – to themselves, to others, to the Earth, and of course, to good live music. Dancers will work with natural elements to inspire an honoring of the Earth in their movements.

Ouça – Listen will take audiences on a journey from deeply-rooted dance traditions of Africa and Brazil, through classic samba music and dance styles, all the way to the ornate costuming and fancy footwork of Brazilian Carnival celebrations.

Samba Fogo’s annual Spring Concert has gained a reputation for providing audiences an exciting, culturally rich, and heart-pounding experience. It has become a local tradition over the years, drawing audiences from all over the Western United States.

Red Bike @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Pygmalion Theatre Company concludes its season with “Red Bike,” a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere by Caridad Svich, directed by Fran Pruyn. The show, which features Sydney Shoell, Jesse Nepivoda and Andrea Kile Peterson, plays April 20 – May 5, at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, Black Box Theatre.
The playwright describes the show like this: “You’re eleven years old, you live in a small town and the times are dark, as they say. But you have a bike, a bike you love, a bike that makes you dream about a world bigger than the one you live in. One day, you take a ride through the outer edges of your town and something goes awry. Let’s call it an accident. Let’s say it causes you to see the world anew. Or maybe, it just causes you to see the world for what it truly is.”

In addition we will have open studio times available for students to work on their tiles at their own pace. The finished product will be a glazed, fired, and mounted 12”x12”tile that if taken care of, will last forever!
